Incredible individual service. The entire staff knew our names after arriving. We were greated each time we came to the lodge by name. They constantly asked how things were and what the could do to help. The grounds are amazing with Giraffe, Zebra's and Baboons milling about. This was our first stop in Africa. What a great way to start a trip.
Our favorite part was a walking safari with John, a Masai male, who gave us incredible insight into the plant and animal life in the camp. His walk was totally eye opening. As a teacher, I love to learn, and John was an outstanding teacher. I really felt a close connection to their way of life and how they respect nature in such a positive way.
All of the staff took particular care. The offer electricity for only a few hours each day, but when they found out that I needed to charge multiple items and that I only had one converter, they extended the time for the generator by several hours. There were only about 6 visitors in the camp at the time. That was very accommodating.
We will definitely choose this place again when we go back and visit the Masai Mara in Kenya.
